How to replace bottom 2 courses of masonite?

Bottom 2 course of garage siding and bottom 4" of sheeting rotting.

Plan: Stop water issue, replace the bottom 1' of sheeting, replace bottom 2 courses of masonite siding.

How can I replace bottom courses without damaging the above courses (pry out or cut out), and should I install a flashing or house wrap between new 1' of sheeting and siding?

Thanks, john

Replace the bottom course as normal, then cut a 1/2 inch off the top of the new piece u are replacing on the 2nd course, this will allow u to get the new siding under the plastic lock lip.
